FAITH leaders came together to support the Fusion Giving Food Bank.
The Islamic Institute of Education, the United Reformed Church and the Care Dewsbury group made donations to the bank, which supports those living below the poverty line.
The event was attended by Dewsbury and Mirfield MP Paula Sherriff, who said: “It’s a sad fact that there are vulnerable people going hungry due to shameful levels of poverty in our area and across the UK.
“It’s great to have support from our community for this very necessary initiative.
“I’m very grateful for the work of Fusion Giving and its volunteers, as well as the community groups are doing their bit to help to limit unacceptable levels of hunger and destitution.”
